the winter storm that hit siouxland was one for the books. record snowfall of more than 6 inches has filled streets... this latest storm produced very wet snow... and with temps dropping to the mid 20's roads were expected to freeze over night an overnight tow ban was also posted for woodbury county.... "always have a plan before you travel, let people know when you're leaving when you're going to arrive, have a cellphone charged up and carry some emergency stuff in your cars; shovels, kitty litters and salts. some blankets to keep warm in case you get stranded in your car and then if your able to get out or if someone has to come pick you up you'll just have to come back the next day to get your car a long as it's not blocking traffic." says sgt. jeremy mcclure of the sioux city police. jessica rae: in addition to the snow... low visabilities and blowing snow could add to an already tricky morning commute. please be safe jessica rae: yesterday's snow was a heavy slushy snow... at one point plows weren't able to keep up forcing the sioux city transit system to suspended operations .. the interuption only lasted about an hour in the afternoon. asst city manager

"i have a 4-wheel drive so...and they're keeping the roads clean, so i haven't had any problems," said "i go home because it's too hard to drive and difficult," said jessica rae: all day yesterday... plow trucks steadily came in and out of the d- o-t garage near tri view avenue, trying to stay on top of interstate road conditions. the first set of plow crews came in at 3 yesterday morning, with the second crew following in at 7. because of the heavy snow fall, shifts have ranged from 12 to 16 hours to maintain insterstate roads and to make clearing the highways easier, few trucks are sent out to the same destination at one time for quicker clean up. . "normally on i-29 we try to run two tow plows in tandem, with one more truck behind us so we can get everything taken across in one shot. the rest of the trucks will run downtown and take the ramps," said rubendall jessica rae: lay down salt brine when they plow, another way d-o-t tries to limit

"the snow plows are trying to catch up with the snow, of course. and, the conditions are so bad that people will slide off in the ditch. so they don't want us halfway in the road trying to pull somebody out of the ditch and cause another accident" says george quint, siouxland towing. jessica rae: look for those tow trucks to hit the road again today.

" ( hillary clinton/(d) presidential candidate) "we've got to start looking at what people are living like today. it is not 1955. it's 2015 and we need to do more to lift up the opportunity ladders that have been knocked down or
5:31 am
believe so strongly that if we give women an equal chance to compete, it's not only good for them and their families it's good for economy. it's a growth strategy." jessica rae: she also joked about the republican candidates running for president... saying she sent copies of her book to each of them. "(hillary clinton/(d) presidential candidate) "you knkn, i was listening to their d dates and it seeeed like they had a lot totoay about me being secretary of state...none of it good. so, i send them all a copy of my book "hard choices." aughter) i said, you know, if you want to know if you want to know how to put together an international coalition, including china and russia, to impose crippling sanctions on iran you can read about it. i even suggested there was so many of them they could form a book club and read it together. (laughter). jessica rae: it was the absence of one senator that drew the most attention.
5:32 am
warren signed a letter urging clinton to run in 20-13, but hasn't yet endorsed her. clinton didn't mention warren's absence and ignored questions about it afterwards. warren's spokeswoman did not respond to quesesons about why the senator did not attend. jessica rae: the state department has released one of hillary clinton's email chains... one that's at the center of republican criticism. the email chain came to light last month, during clinton's marathon 11-hour testimony before a house committee. one exchange shows clinton telling her daughter, chelsea. "an al-qaeda-like group" launched the attack on the u-s consulate in benghazi. on the same night clinton also released a public statement condemning the attack, which noted, "some have sought to justify this vicious behavior as a response to inflammatory material posted on the internet." jessica rae: donald trump met with dozens of black religious leaders in new york yesterday... some of whom are endorsing him for president. e key word is some... because at one
5:33 am
campaign said all the leaders would endorse the g-o-p frontrunner. reporter sara murray has more. " (donald trump) "i saw love in that room. i see love everywhere i go." despite walking back what his campaign had originally promoted as an endorsement event with 100 black pastors, donald trump emerged from today's closed-door meeting calling it a success. (donald trump) "we actually didn't think we were going to be having a press conference. we all thought it was such a good meeting we would do that. and we have many, many endorsements that came out of the meeting." in the lead-up to today's get- together, several of the pastors invited said they had no intention of backing the gop frontrunner...or even attending the meet and greet. ( bishop morton) "if you talk down to women, if you talk down to documented immigrants, calling them rapists and then black lives - get 'em out of here - no, you can't represent me, so i don't even need to hear your platform." victor couzens said he came to talk with trump -- nothing more. (bishop victor couzens) "it's really encumbered upon me to take advantage of the opportunity to query him about exactly the types of things we should expect from a potential trump administration. i'm
5:34 am
mr. trump. i'm here to have a dialogue." the pastors' caution -- and outright criticism -- comes as trump faces scrutiny for re- tweeting a racially- charged message... and suggesting a black lives matter protester deserved to be roughed up at a trump campaign rally. others attending today's meeting said they would attempt to convince their colleagues to support trump. ( stephen parson) "anybody that knows donald trump personally knows that he's not a racist, he's provided more jobs for minorities, for mexicans, for african americans - he's'sxactly what not only what the african erican community needs, but what america needs." trump today seemed undeterred by the change in plans. (donald trump) "the beautiful thing about the meeting is that they really didn't ask me to change the tone. i think they want to see victory, because ultimately it is about we want to win, and we want to win together." meanwhile trump continues to face scrutiny for repeatedly insisting he saw large crowds of muslim-

celebrating in new jersey on 9/11... (donald trump) "i've had hundreds and hundreds of calls and tweets of people that saw it, and plenty of people saw it." jessica rae: it's not the first time donald trump has threatened to pull out of a debate. he's floating the idea again. on a campaign stop in georgia... trump suggested c-n-n... who is hosting the next debate... should pay him to attend. " ( donald trump / (r) presidential candidate ) "but how about we do this with cnn, i won't do the debate unless they pay me $5 million, all of which goes to the wounded warriors or go to vets. seriously. i would love to do it." ssica rae: the debate will be held in las vegas in two weeks... on december 15th at 8 p-m. jessica rae: ted cruz held a town hall meeting in bettendorf, iowa... and made some interesting comments about birth control. he criticized what called the demomoats war on womeme... and he accused esidential

false claims about republican positions. take a listen to what he said: "last i checked we don't have a rubber shortage in america. when i was in college we had a machine in the bathroom, you put 50 cents in and voila! so yes, anyone who wants contraceptives can access them but it's an utterly made-up nonsense issue. jessica rae: there were many children in the town hall event. it's not the only eyebrow-raising comment cruz made in iowa this weekend. he told reporters in newton that robert dear -- the man accused of opepeng fire in a plplned parenthoho clinic last week... was a "transgender leftist activist." the redevelopment plan for o-c-t pipe has been approved by the norfolk community development agency. here's susan risinger with the details. community has unanimously
